If you were looking for an interesting and fun event last month, the Language Festival was not to be missed.
This cultural event was held April 17 in Gordon Quad. Originally scheduled from 10 a.m to 2 p.m., the event ran slightly longer because of a piñata breaking.
Student Jamel Branch, who attended last year’s Language Festival said “It was great, seems like it gets better and better every year.”
The event was filled with various tables that showcased different countries. Participants visited booths to get their passport stamped, but not before answering a few questions about the country.
“I feel it was very informative, and it exposed a very wide variety of cultures. Passports made us interact and learn,” said student Amanawit Teferi.
There were many performances happening as well, from live music to capoeira. Attendees even took part in a dance called “El Caballo Dorado, which is similar to an American line dance.
“It was nice to see everyone at school intrigued by different cultures. The festival showed the openness in City College,” student Tracy Adams said.
Traditional items like dresses, bracelets, hats and even henna tattoos were for sale.
“Very awesome and diverse. I love to travel, so it was great to have all this diversity at school,” Cage Cluff said.
